Police plan heavy Cruise-In presence

Langley RCMP are going to be out in force making sure burnouts aren’t a part of this year’s Langley Good Times Cruise-In this weekend.

More than 70 officers are scheduled to work the Cruise-In, with the Integrated Road Safety Units and combined forces gang unit also helping out.

“There will be a significant police presence to address any infractions that detract from the family atmosphere and intent of the event,” said Langley RCMP spokesperson Cpl. Holly Marks.

Getting caught doing doughnuts, racing or doing burnouts will result in drivers having their vehicle impounded for seven days.

On Friday evenings in years past, a number of troublemakers were doing burnouts and doughnuts and endangering public safety. So Cruise-In organizers cancelled Friday events last year, including the cruise to the drive-in on Friday night.

No Friday events are planned for this year.

Police plan to step up enforcement on Friday and continue throughout the weekend.
